I learned a lot considering it was my first real job. My manager was great, she cared about us and that were treated and paid fair. Never felt as if we were working in a foreign place.

Loved volunteering there! Everyone was very helpful and nice. It was a very fast paced environnement though as expected with any hospital. Hardest part was for sure seeing some very sad and frightening situations.

For example, working at the library of McGill University is not stressful and enjoyable due to the very compassionate supervisors. Some of the tasks require shelving books - placing them in their appropriate place, searching for requested books and take part in special missions.

I was a full-time student for two years. There are many opportunities to learn and improve in both area Knowledge and culture. Learning from professors who the most are knowledgeable and aware prof. Unwithstanding studying at McGill would be a sort of fast-paced education, but that would be one of the unforgettable experience in life.
Working together, Learning more, following up hard and enjoying deep at the time I studied at McGill that push forward me with the supportive and effective methods.

Also, ‌studying at this university motivates us to be able to work as an effective and innovative member of a group.

Management is run mainly by an old school brotherhood mentality. No flexibility with work hours, lack of management support, no HR support with any conflicts and every department runs differently so there is no universal rules for the organizations when it comes to telecommuting, salary increases etc. Management lacks the understanding of burn outs and mental health.

Granted that you have a well defined research project and funding, you can expect an overall stimulating and interesting experience conducting research in the engineering department. It's a place of learning and developing essential skills as a young engineer.

The environment was stress-free most days and then out of nowhere there was so much work to do right as I left. The community was generally stressed but easy-going and very accommodating.
